Martin Freeman Wants Love Scene in 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey'

The actor believes his character Bilbo Baggins has had sex, and wants Peter Jackson to acknowledge that in the upcoming prequel.

In what is kind of a strange story, actor Martin Freeman has gone on record to declare that his character Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is not a virgin. And he would like director Peter Jackson to acknowledge this with a love scene shown in either one of the two upcoming prequels.

To prepare for the role of Bilbo, Martin Freeman claims that he did consider every aspect of the character's life, including his past relationships with other hobbits.

"I think he's had sex. I'm not sure. I'm trying to convince Peter to write that scene in..."


Its doubtful that Peter Jackson will focus on any sort of Hobbit tryst in his upcoming two-part fantasy adventure. It is, after all, being marketed as a family film. There has also been much debate over the years about Bilbo's sexual persuasion, and that kind of controversy will surely not be courted or commented on here, except maybe in the slightest way.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was released December 14th, 2012 and stars Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ken Stott, Graham McTavish, William Kircher, James Nesbitt, Stephen Hunter. The film is directed by Peter Jackson.

    LOL!

    Typical Freeman, lol always being a comedian... But really don't think this validates the importance to have its own article because any one else can tell Freeman is joking.

    Martin Freeman was apparently kidding.
    But I'm not sure if the person who wrote "...comes to theaters December 14th, 2012 and stars Saoirse Ronan, David Tennant" was also kidding.

    Personally, I think this article is blown out of proportion. No reason to hate on Freeman for making a joke.
